Love the title of this article from a contributing author to Ageist. The things she ruminates on are the same thoughts many of us who continue to be active as we age have wondered.
She writes…”I was slowly falling into anxiety induced by overuse and mixed cultural messages about age, time and power. I felt lost in space between ‘I used to do this’ and ‘I do this.’ I didn’t feel so much like the aging woman but the grounded athlete and that gave me a slightly different edge. My belief about myself was still bathed in action vs the age; however, I was feeling myself slowly giving up.”
So… are you a badass or over the hill?
